It is with great sadness and disappointment that we have taken the difficult but ultimately inevitable decision to cancel the 2020 Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival is a charity. A large amount of the Festival’s costs are covered by our ticket income. The cancellation puts us, like many others, in a very challenging situation. We would be extremely grateful for your support to help ensure we are well-placed to present future Festivals and continue to support artists and communities through our work.
We deeply value our place in both the local and artistic communities, and over the coming days and weeks we will unreservedly play our part in supporting the artistic sector. As the situation develops, we will look at how we, as an Arts Council funded organisation, do the right thing by staff, artists and freelance workers.
You can support us in two ways:
If you have already purchased Festival tickets, and have the capacity to make a donation of part or all of your ticket value, we would be extremely grateful. We will be in contact with all ticket-buyers, and it is then that you will be given the option to donate.
You can also make an outright donation to support our work here through the donation link below.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.
Thank you for your support during this difficult period – every penny makes a difference.
